    general method of solving simultaneous equ. and elimination of variable

    given x^4+ax^3+bx^2-8x+4 is the identity of
    x^4 +(l+c)x^3+(m+d+cl)x^2 +(cm+dl)x + dm
    then l+c=a
    m+d+cl=b
    cm+dl=-8
    dm=4
    i have to find abcdlm. i always write so many useless steps in solving simultaneous equ by elimination. would any one give me some advice and a general guide so that i could do it quick and fast without writing redundant steps? thanks.

    Hmm...Is it the product abcdlm or the variables a,b,c,d,l,m that you want ?

    sorry! it's just an example. that a,b,c,d,l,m cannot be found. the example doesn't work too. just want to know what is the general method to solve simultaneous equation.

    The first thing I thought when I saw your equations was to take the equation containing the least number of variables, then substitute.

    When I see an immediate factor that would eliminate a given variable, without putting too many variables into one equation, I do it..

    If you have given examples, perhaps it'd help
